Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 92 A deep, dark color combines with extravagantly spicy oak aromas, rich fruit flavors and layers of fine tannins for a show-stopping performance. This is full-bodied and firm in texture, abundantly laced with blackberry and boysenberry flavors and pretty much irresistible. Drink now or cellar through 2018.
Wine Tasting Notes Rich on the attack, more black-berry, coffee and supple tannin than previous vintages. Spiked with a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon, it balances the deeply colored, firm-tannin Petite Sirah. The tannins are substantial, but tame enough to make this wine ready to drink - no decanting required.
